First “good” box I made for my girlfriend almost a year ago. It is made from a discarded cherry cabinet door from the cabinet shop I work in. Used cherry splines to fill in the groves originally for the door panel, gives it a cool look. Not very good pics. Stained and 2 coats of polyurathane. She loves it, and I’m getting ALOT better at box making… thanks

Jon, this is a nice looking box and it is great that you saved the wood to give it new purpose in this box.

Nice job. The feeling of the first never comes back again! So, enjoy it. This is GREAT recycling.

Might I add the relevant vertical conjical is a little off, but besides that nice job for a first timer! I really like how you instituted the illusion of a triurethane thiols weave, thus keeping the viewer forever interested in the piece.

Keep at it man!
